Then a visit to Lake Tyrrell, Victoria's largest salt lake, is a must for any nature enthusiast or budding photographer.
The 120,000-year-old lake is regarded as one of the best places in Australia for star navigation, with the dark and endless skies providing the perfect environment to view the dazzling spectacles of the southern hemisphere's constellations.
The unique salty formation on the lake bed has also become a mecca for international visitors looking to capture that once in a lifetime photo opportunity, over the shallow lake's reflective surface.
Lake Tyrrell is situated in the heart of the Mallee region, a four-hour drive from Melbourne along the Calder Highway and seven kilometres north of the town of Sea Lake. There is a viewing platform and an information bay.
